Dollar Tree Halloween Wreath

The fair starts next week. The kids are very excited.

I decided to make a couple wreaths to enter in the crafting categories. Naturally, the little girls wanted to make something, too.

Punky Brewster and I hit the dollar store after school and picked up the needed supplies:

foam floral wreath
crepe paper
pumpkin cutouts
foam letters

Don't they look excited after finishing the wreath? Total happy dance! And a total reminder that I need to finish pulling down the wallpaper!

To make the wreath, wrap orange crepe paper all the way around. Hot glue it down. Cut strips of black crepe paper and attach it so it looks stripey.

Next, glue down the pumpkin cutouts on the orange. We tried it on the black,but the orange looks better.  Little Miss said it looks like the pumpkins eyes are glowing.

Attach a strip of crepe paper to the back of the wreath and stick your foam letters on. Punky Brewster wanted a word she could spell herself. She's in kindergarten, so BOO was the winner.

Didn't Punky Brewster do a great job? Maybe she'll win a ribbon at the fair?

  2. Super cute. Love that it is all from the dollar tree...that is my kind of project budget. New follower via Cheerios and Lattes.

  3. I love it- I have a wreath form sitting on my desk waiting for inspiration- and here it is! Thanks.

    Also, can I say how much I loved Punky Brewster as a child!?

    Popping by from "Cheerios"...come say hi over at week I'm linking up some cutesy bee wrapping paper. Love the blog- thanks for sharing!!

  4. I can tell your kids had a blast. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.


Thanks and have a great day!
